that we cannot afford to sacrifice accuracy to speed and of course our government is sparing no effort tracking down the terrorists who perpetrated this attack. and we are focused as we must on what needs to be done to protect our people and our facilities. we had another terrible attack yesterday. i strongly condemn the killing of a long time yemeni employee at our embassy. we are working with yemeni authorities to investigate this and bring those responsible to justice as well but throughout all of this we must not only focus on the headlines. we have to keep in mind the trend lines and remain focused on the broader strategic question posed by democratic transitions and their impact on american interests and values. let me start by stating the obvious. nobody should have ever thought this would be an easy road. i certainly didn't. however, it is important to look at the full picture, to wave of violent acts of a small number of extremists against the aspirations and actions of the region's people and government. that broader view supports rather than discredits the promise of the ara
government. our government taxes and spends out of control and our civil liberties are constantly under attack. we can fix it, but we need to get government back into its cagae. >> our final opening statement is from jeff flake. >> good to be here. two days ago, cheryl and i received a wonderful phone call from my son syan and forming as we are grandparents. aidan was born into a wonderful family, but he was born into $50,000 of debt. his share of the federal debt we all hold. that is why the stakes in this election are so high. we have to have somebody who understands fiscal discipline. that has been my record in the house of representatives, where i fought my own leadership on issues like earmarks. they punish me for it, but i kept at it and we do not have earmarks any more. that is the kind of attitude i will take to the united states senate. my opponent have a great rÉsume a. but a great resonate is not a plan. he has been running for a year now and we do not know where he stands on the major issues of the day. we have a choice in this election. we can elect somebody who does not h

government, but hesitated to make decisions and were forced to rely upon local and tribal militias of varying degrees of loyalty. in late spring, the police were allowed to return to work to help with traffic, but were limited to that only. fighting between militias was common. militias separated -- they appeared to be disintegrating into freelance criminal operations. targeted attacks against westerners were increasing. in june, the ambassador received a threat on facebook with a public announcement he would like to run around the embassy compound in tripoli. when i arrived in february, three teams were on the ground. ambassador katz was forced -- lost one of his teams. the ambassador struggled with renewing the sst beyond april 5. that is ambassador stevens. the second msd team was withdrawn after the departure of critz. restricted from performing security work only and limited only to train local guard force members in july. the remaining msd was withdrawn at the same time the sst was terminated. the security in benghazi was a struggle and remained a struggle throughout my time there. the
in the attack. they had repeatedly asked for tighter security. initially, the american government the attack to protest against an anti-muslim film. now they say it was a terrorist attack. >> the committee will come to order. >> republicans are outraged at the change. >> in fact, it was 9/11, the 11th anniversary of the greatest terrorist attack in u.s. history, in new york, pennsylvania, and at the pentagon. it was that the anniversary which caused an organization allied with al qaeda to attack and kill our personnel. >> this is not just about why the attack took place. people at the state it -- the charges that people ignored the request for further security. only months before the election, that is a very serious charge. imitt romney has put the attack at the heart of his argument that president obama does not stand for america. -- stand up for america. >> as the administration has finally conceded, these attacks were the deliver it work of terrorists. >> the committee -- for the deliberate -- these attacks were the deliberate work of terrorists. >> we have hundreds of terrorist-type acti
in return is by and large good government. and we do find it. we have research and studies that have gone into that. there's also the question of corporate money which was pointed out, everybody but super pacs would be funded by corporate money. that is cloudy not the case. it's almost all individual money. albeit from very wealthy individuals. there's not a strong reason to think is mostly corporate money, especially not large corporate publicly traded corporations. what we have to ultimately is a couple of questions. there's one question, which is is a good or bad habits more open deregulate system where everybody can kind of play the game? the second question is the one kim keeps trying to drag us back to is how much of this do we need more disclosure of this because some of this activity is not disclosed? i will note that 501(c)(4) organizations have always been able to participate in politics and it never had to disclose their donors. i take, sort of my starting point, my perception of the government better have a darn good reason before source keeping a database in which it catalogs
, of course he wants to hire more government workers. look, all of these things have not ignited our economy the way it should be ignited. we've seen the slowest recovery from a recession. bill: john roberts traveling with the campaign. live in vanmeter, iowa, that is west of des moines. what is happening there, john? >> reporter: good morning. governor romney will be talking agriculture today. not surprisingly we're on a 700 acre farm owned by the cook family. a lot of soybeans and corn here. we're in madison county. governor romney won this in the caucuses by the way. he will argue the president's policies things like estate taxes, climate change, environmental regulations, energy policy are hurting farmers. he continues to go after the president on issue of jobs of the even though the unemployment number is down below the psych lodge call level at 8% on the stump in newport news, governor romney found a new way to use it. >> if you look back 60 years, at all the months we had unemployment before 8% before president obama. there were 39 months. in all 60 years with unemployment above 8%. u
the economy and create jobs. it is estimated to create 7 million jobs. now, we think that government taking 28% of a family and business in income is enough. president obama thinks that the government ought to be able to take as much as 44.8% of a maul business's income. look, if you passed every person and successful small business making over $250,000 at 100%. they would only run the government for 98 days. if everybody who paid income taxes last year doubled their income taxes last year we would still have a $100 billion deficit. aren't enough rich people to tax to pay for all of their spends. so the next time you hear them say don't worry about it. watch out, middle class, the tax bill is coming to you. that's why we're saying we need million tax reform. out of ten businesses filed their tax as individuals not corporations. the canadians dropped their tax rates to 15%. the average tax rate on businesses in industrialized world is 25%, and the president wants the top effective tax rate on successful small businesses to go above 40%. two-thirs of our jobs come from smal
is if our worst fears about libya were to come to pass. as i mentioned before, the libyan government is very much committed to the road map they've laid out, they're very committed to the political process, but i'd like to bring you back to the middle of 2011. at the time, gadhafi's head of external security defected. and when he defected, he warned that libya would become like somalia. and at the time i think most frames of references were to mogadishu, to a black hawk down moment. and, unfortunately, we have had a black hawk down moment in benghazi. but i think he's, you know, a are nuanced guy. and what i think he was referring to was a much broader frame of reference. how would libya look like somalia. not just a black hawk down incident, not just a benghazi incident, but other dimensions as well. and i think what he meant was probably this: that militia leaders are going to transition into warlords, that some parts of the country are going to fall to islamists akin to somalia, that other parts of the country will be relatively manageable like puntland or somaliland, but they're going to
this in syria. so something going on as we speak. the u.s. government did this with libya. basically arming the opposition. and you know, your men ri's men ri is only my friend for so long. is that a wise approach? >> no. i have spent time on this issue. there's no doubt providing nonlethal communication support is extraordinary important and secretary clinton announced massive amount of humanitarian assistance and ku dos to the administration for doing that. the real problem here is that there's this struggle within the romney campaign itself over syria between neo-conservatives to militarily intervene and those who actually are more reticent and the problem is that mr. romney flip flops between one group and the other and can't quite decide which one is more important. the bottom line, however, for purposes of american interest in the middle east, arming a rag tag group of rebels at this point in time is inconsistent with understanding when's going to emerge of syria in the long run. one of the reasons why i'm reticent is because we don't really know who the rebels are. some of them are a
of what may still be a facility of the united states government for more facilities. you may continue. i respect your right to deliver what you want. but i will caution you that that which is told to us on a classified spaces needs to remain that way. you cannot have it one day in a classified briefing, which i attended yesterday, and the same material be presented on classified the next day. the ambassador is recognized. >> thank you very much. distinguished members of the committee. i'd like to share a few words with you. libyan space significant challenges as they make the transition from an oppressive dictatorship to a stable and prosperous democracy. it will be an extraordinary honor to represent the united states during this historic period of transition in your -- in libya. we understand why christopher stevens went to libya, his passion for the country and his mission. he believes no talent is too big our too hard in our national security or value is at stake. that is what is in stake at the best at stake in libya. we will do our best to answer your -- that is what is at stake in
windows all around. that night it turned into a trap. government sources say stevens personal security guard managed to climb out a window, perhaps this one where the bars were removed. the question is why stevens left behind in the dark and the smoke didn't follow. his body was pulled from that same window by a crowd hours later. the september 11th attack wasn't the first on the u.s. consulate. it had been bombed in june. on september the 8th, a commander of one of benghazi's most powerful militias met with three americans, one from the u.s. embassy to warn them about deteriorating security. >> translator: benghazi is not safe. >> you told that to the americans. >> translator: yeah. >> reporter: the brigade commander added that he didn't think his advice or warnings were really taken to heart by americans. but that meeting had been called to discuss the possibility of americans' private investment returning to benghazi but the subject was even under discussion considering the circumstances is remarkable. >> the taliban said it is responsible for the attack on a 14-year-old pakistani g

. official announcement coming out next week from the government. 1.5% to 1.7%, it ain't huge. past few years, let's look at that. benefits increased 3.6% this year because inflation was higher. what's coming next year is better than what happened in 2009 and 2010 when checks didn't go up at all. you want to blame congress but you can't blame congress for this minuscule increase coming next year. cost of living adjustment is based on the consumer price index. cpi measures inflation, e price you pay for things like food and clothing and fuel. if prices are up over the past year, those social security checks go up. and if prices haven't moved or they fall, social security checks stay the same. i guess to sort of put the slamation point sla exclamation point on this, at least they're going up a bit instead of staying the same. >> alison kosik, thank you very much. >>> more people around the country getting sick and dying from a rare meningitis outbreak. dr. gupta make ace starting discovery while into digging as to how this happened. hahahaha! hooohooo, hahaha! this is awesome! folks who save hu

government they knew this was a terrorist attack as it was happening and certainly within 24 hours. knew most every detail about what had happened. that's why i said from the very beginning this has been totally bizarre as far as how they responded. as far as culpability regarding the operations on the ground i know there is a hearing today. there will be a lot of discussions but the fact is when we have these expedition shun airy role when we have people in countries basically controlled by militias i think there are a lot of policy issues that have to be answered and i'm sure the hearing today will be helpful in that regard. to me --. bill: we're looking forward to getting some headlines here. let me back up just a moment. you just said in the early hours of this attack on september 11 that the administration knew everything? what did they know? >> there is no question, and i think today, i mean there's been ref vailings -- revelations through ap and other place, the state department is saying this, from the very beginning everyone knew this was a terrorist attack, there is no question. tha
